    The dominant feature overlooking Redruth and Camborne is the 750 ft. high granite plateau of Carn Brea.First inhabited in the Neolithic period around 3400-3700 BC, these early settlers were followed by Iron Age dwellers who would have probably been the first people to have mined the hillside around 2,000 years or so ago.A minor road from Carnkie...

Redruth Restaurants

  • Great Food and BIG portions !

    The Red Lion is the only Public House in the village of Mawnan Smith just outside Falmouth in Cornwall. Although about 20 miles away from Redruth the food is so good, when I opt to eat out I usually head there. An atmospheric traditional country pub, thatched roof, nooks and crannies, beamed ceilings, log fire and real, exquisite character. Worth...

  • Castle Cusine

    I have eaten in Carn Brea Castle several times and it is unique. There is a narrow single track road to the castle which turns into a rough track for the last 200 mts or so and rises to the castle from the village of Carnkie near Redruth. Watch out for slightly raised granite stone embedded in the track. There is a car park immediately outside the...

  • Eat in a Castle!

    When we visited this Restaurant a couple years ago, the friendly owner was Turkish (I think) and the food reflects this. What I can remember is that it was a delicious mix of Turkish type food with an twist, to suit the English palate.If your car is capable of making the climb upto this view point, make the trip because I can assure you that it...

  • Carn Brae Monument

    As well as the castle on Carn Brae, you will find this 90ft (approx 30mtr) high monument made of granite.It was built in 1836, as a tribute to a local man. Lord Francis Basset was a mining entrepreneur and a member of an ancient Cornish family. They became one of the principal mine owners in the Camborne-Redruth mining district in the 18th and 19th...

  • As old as the Hills

    Above the townships of Camborne, Pool, Redruth & Illogan, Known collectively as CPRI, is a hill called Carn Brea. The Northern slope is steep with a few rutted paths to the top. One or two are shallow gullies which act as drainage during heavy rain. Access to the top from this side does require a degree of fitness. The Southern and Western sides...

  • A rugged coastal path walk

    If you exit Tehidy Park via the North Cliff Car parking area (See previous tip on Tehidy) Turn right and then almost immediately left. This is a rough track of about 150 Mts which will take you to a car park area at the cliff top known locally as the Mimrose Well area. There are two options here, turning right will take you up hill and down dale to...
